I'm trying to bring one back that's had an obvious hard life.

The bail trip lever was bent.  How do you do that?  I straightened it.

It also has a broken oscillator slide that I will need to source.

Also, the bail is tweaked good, but I can't tell where for sure, as I don't have another 265 to reference.

Could someone post some pictures of how their line roller aligns with the spool/rotor?  I think that's where my problem is at.

Is this what you need, Balvar24?

That helps.  Have you got a picture "looking down the barrel" so to speak.  Basically looking head on at the drag button?

When you figure out the parts you need for your 265 Microlite -- i have them available.

Lots of other knowledgeable folks on here when it comes to DAM Quicks --

And I also know them fairly well --

But parts availability is key -- and for Alan Tani members -- my DQ shop bins have that covered.

Best, Fred

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.
